Gummy Smile or Gingivoplasty
Gingivectomy (gum trimming) refers to the surgical removal of gum (gingiva) tissue. Typically, gingivoplasty is a special procedure used to reshape healthy gum tissue to better support teeth. As you may be aware, periodontists specialize in treating gum disorders. Therefore, if you need this type of procedure, you will have to visit a periodontist.
